Because we all have influence on each other, WE ALL HAVE POWER. This IM4U Principle encourages children to embrace their power –their abilities, interests, and personalities— in ways that create positive change. A caring community is one that builds up every member to use their power.
Children in the Pre-K years may not understand power from this perspective. In fact, when they hear the word “power,” they might think of the superpowers of superheroes. In this principle activity you can use the idea of superpowers to introduce the super powers of words like “kindness”, “friendliness,” “listening,” “welcoming,” “happiness,” “joy”, “caring,” and “peace” all of which affect positive change.
Children discuss ways to use power to affect change in the world around us in a positive way.
